Freakedly Arced Quotations or Frekenly Axed Quest Ions
Q: WHAT...is your name? A: The band, RedFish. Q: WHAT... is RedFish?
A: RedFish is a bunch of guys who make music of a specific type called Eclectic Rock. Which means covers. Of the very broad variety, variety. (The management apologizes for the previous interviewer. He has been sacked. The FAQ will now continue with a new
Q: Is it true RedFish has been cited by the Oxford Committee for persistent violations of grammar, specifically numbers agreement?
A: Have not has.
Q: I don't understand your answer.
Q: You state you are, and I quote, "Cuter than the Stones, uglier than the Beatles". How do you expect to stand out of the crowd if you are not one extreme or the other?
A: Well, one or two of group are pretty cute. (See Wikipedia’s list of 100 Cutest Rockers.) And, a couple are pretty much hosers so we've covered the Extremes. Specifically, their 1992 hit "Hey, What Am I Doing Out Here at the End of the Universe?" It's in D-minor.
A: You wanna ask another question?
Q: Just what do you mean by "Eclectic Rock"? A: We'll we've never figured out just what "Eclectic" means, but we play stuff by bands with one, two, three
Q: Where does RedFish play their "Eclectic" Rock?
A: We've toured Europe, parts of Africa, bits and pieces of Asia, some islands and England.
Q: Isn't England part of Europe?
A: They don't seem to think so.
Q: RedFish is based in Santa Barbara in California, which is part of the USA, right? Don't you play in the US?
A: Sure. Thirty-two states so far--and we've either run out of money or been thrown out of maybe twenty more.
Q: But, don't you play in the Santa Barbara area?
A: Yeah, you know, parties, festivals, TV: the Cinco de Mayo festival, SoHo, Fiesta on the big stage. We're hot, we're in demand, but we're available. All you gotta do is call Stu (805/705-0161) or send
Q: So, people really like what you play?
A: Yeah, yeah. People really seem to dig it. We really give a good show and people dance and yell and scream. It's the most fun you can have out in the open that's still legal.
Q: Does it cost much?
A: Depends. (How's that for a geriatric joke?)
Q: Hmm. If someone were to book you for, say, a private party would they have to pay up front?
A: Oh, yeah. At least part. Between 1% and 99%. It's negotiable, everything's negotiable.
Q: But it wouldn't cost much?
A: Not as much as the Beatles or Stones. Naw, not too much. If we like you we can negotiate a price you'll like. Truth is, we just like to play. And people like to hear us. Here's the secret, so don't tell anybody: we pretend like we get paid for schlepping our gear and setting up our show. After that, after all the heavy lifting is done, we pretend to play for free. You got one or two requests, just let us know when you book us…like. Just not Freebird or Stairway to Heaven.
Q: Some venues prefer the band to be, shall we say, not too loud. Is that possible?
A: Yeah, yeah. We can do that. It's really hard work and we're like wiped out for a week, but we can do it. Same price.
Q: Ok, why are you making a funny face?
A: I was just thinking. Can we start over?
A: Wait. Where are you going? I was going to make espresso...
